Hello everyone - I've already introduced myself but I havent been very active on the site much. So far, I have a coop, have a run, need some supplies for water/feed/etc.. but really I am stuck on where to get my birds. There are just so many options and coming from a background of adopting all of my dogs, the whole breeder aspect of chickens is new to me. Just screams out like a puppy-mill business (but for chickens of course). Was hoping some of you could help ease my mind to this or refer me to some reputable breeders or if theres someone local to me that's reading this, can point me in the right direction. I live in north county San Diego and dont mind driving a bit to get to a good place Thanks!
